Karen Ward, Psychotherapist, BA (Oxon), MBACP, FPC
I have worked as a psychodynamic therapist for nearly 15 years and currently practice in the City of London, specialising in psychodynamic psychotherapy.
I offer a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space to explore thoughts, feelings and experiences which may be troubling you, and which you may be finding difficult to resolve alone, or discuss elsewhere.
Deciding to talk to a therapist is rarely an easy or comfortable decision, often precipitated by an emotional crisis, or at a time when painful feelings threaten to become overwhelming and unmanageable.
If you decide to contact me, I will endeavour to offer understanding and support over a sustained period, working with you to find a realistic and meaningful way forward.
Please contact me by phone or email and I will get back to you promptly and in confidence.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained at two of the leading academic and clinical institutions in the UK – University of Cambridge (Post-graduate and Advanced diploma in Counselling) and WPF Therapy, London, (Post-graduate diploma in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy).
I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and FPC (Foundation for Psychotherapy and Counselling). I work in accordance with the ethical code of the BACP.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
